. From here we went into the Wizarding World of Harry Potter where Courtney and I went on the Dragon challenge blue ride and Rich stayed and had lunch with the kids then we switched over. Only then realising that there were 2 rides. Red and blue so after they came back I did the red with Courtney, she is a real adrenalin junkie. We all then went and joined the queue for Harry Potter and the Forbidden journey. Only Rorke wasn't tall enough so we did the child swop and everyone had a few turns they all loved it. Rorke enjoyed watching a bit of the movie in the child swop room. From here we went on the Flight of the Hippogriff. There was still a water ride we hadn't been on so we went to join the queue for Popeye & Bluto's Bilge-Rat Barges. This was a brilliant ride and we all got soaked to the bone, there was not a part of you that didn't get wet. A good laugh. Afterwards we sat in the sun trying to dry our socks and shoes. Denim shorts are so not a good choice for this ride!! The kids explored the Me ship, The Olive, while we tried to get dry. Lovely having squishy shoes!! We then headed to Seuss landing. On the way Rich and Courtney went to go on Doctor Dooms Freefall and we carried on. We went on the Caro -Seuss-el, One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish when we finished we met up to find out they had gone twice more on the Hulk. We then went on The Cat in the Hat and finally the High in the Sky Seuss Trolley Train Ride. We headed into the Lost Continent where we went to see the Poseidon Fury show which was a great show.We walked past the Mystic fountain and went and watched a magic show - it truly is amazing how they do some of these tricks. We decided to quickly pop into The Wizarding World of Harry Potter into Zonkos shop pretty neat stuff inside. We then headed home via a quick shop at Walmart and some pizza's from Papa John's for supper. Dinner, bath and bed.
Another early start. We left 6 minutes later this morning but still parked in the Spider-Man section. Got in and headed straight for the big roller coaster The Incredible Hulk Coaster, it was fantastic. Courtney and I first went. Rich took the others on Storm Force Accelatron while they waited and then we swopped over the only thing is that Courtney and Rich so enjoyed it that they went on again as they us!! From there we all went on The Amazing Adventures of Spider-Man, which was fantastic. Afterwards they had a picture with Spider-Man. We then walked through Toon Lagoon and went on Dudley Do-Rights Ripsaw Falls. Wow - we all got pretty soaked, good fun. From there we headed into Jurassic Park. Went on the Pteranodon Flyers, oh my it is pretty high up flying along above the treetops. Afterwards we wandered through the caves listening to dinosaur notices before going on the Jurassic Park River Adventure, with much consternation we got there. Rorke and I sat with a lovely lady and her daughter unfortunately her daughter was rather large and so the lap restraint didn't restrain me let alone Rorke so between the 2 of us we wedged him in and held him down
